Summer Staples…


I could write about how today was one of the LONGEST Mondays I have had in awhile and that I sat at my computer working for 14 straight hours but I won’t bore you with those details.  Instead I will tell you about…

Summer staples I can NOT live without:

Zen Green Tea

During the day I have been drinking Zen green tea by the gallon!  I mix the tea bags with ice and water and drink it cold.  Not only is it delicious, but green tea contains antioxidants called catechin polyphenols that are responsible for many of the health benefits of green tea. One of them in particular, epigallocatechin gallate, has been found to stimulate the metabolism and accelerate weight loss.

Vicks Vapor Rub

A few months ago I had a friend turn me on to this little baby and let me tell you it is WAY more than just some cream you rub on your chest when your feeling congested. Check out this awesome list!

Sally Hansen Nail Effects

It doesn’t matter how many base or top coats I apply, when I paint my nails my manicure chips within an hour.  This Sally Hansen product rocks!  Plus they have a ton of cute designs so you can switch it up!

Anti Monkey Butt PowderI first tried this product after getting a sample in race packet a couple years ago and I love it!  This product is awesome if you have an issue with chaffing while working out.  The hotter it gets the more of an issue chaffing can be and this product literally eliminates it. They sell this at my local Giant Eagle so check it out!!!

Since I started with a tea I will end with another one of my favorite that I may have mentioned on my blog before.

Smooth Move Tea

If you ever have problems with irregularity (don’t we all) this tea is your new best friend. My mom turned me onto this tea a couple years ago and I love it!   You drink a cup of this hot tea at night and the next morning things will be rolling (you’ll poop)!  Buyer beware: the first time you drink this it can cause several bowel movements.  Your body will get used to this though.  I try to drink this tea only twice a week.  The nice thing about this tea is that is stimulates your bowels and isn’t like a laxative that can cause severe cramping.

This concludes my “Summer Staples”, please try out these awesome products for yourself.  You will NOT be sorry!
